M. Night Shyamalan has redeemed himself somewhat in my eyes. The Village is an intriguing tale, and well-told. Moreso than his two previous offerings, Unbreakable and Signs, though still not on par with his supernatural tour de force The Sixth Sense. There is a twist in this movie, as audiences have come to expect from Shyamalan, but I wasn’t prepared for its philosophically profound implications. I left the theater wondering if the story told could have ever really happened, or, indeed, if it could be happening somewhere right now.
